Mulhouse church in HDR over Christmas.

A few weeks ago I went for a weekend in Mulhouse with Angel Sanguinetti and our wives. It was cold (but not near as cold as it had been in Berlin the year before).

We went out to shoot some photos and while many of our shots are similar I took one that he didn’t take (we just do everything to be different don’t we). So after some post processing work here it is.

Mulhouse over Christmas is really nice, plenty of animations in the city, great decoration and a real Christmas spirit. The entire temple is lit up in red lights and looks great. I made it a bit more dramatic in my shot using Topaz software after I had HDR’d it and I like this effect the most.

Taking photos of red lights is not easy I noticed, but with the HDR it did come out OK.

Photo tip of the day:

– Don’t be afraid to look like an idiot when you shoot. For this shot I was almost laying down on the steps leading to the church. It served two purposes, firstly to get the view and second to get all the people walking by to walk large circles around me and thus not be in the shot.

Hope to be posting more soon… Happy holidays to you all!
